Presenting EntreMats

From Frederic Monti & The Chicago School Of Mold Making

In an effort to streamline the work of shaping and assembling the components that make up the layers of an entremet, Chef Monti and Michael Joy designed EntreMats. Making an entremet traditionally requires each layer be hand piped or cut to fit and leveled into the collective/final shape, tasks that require both skill and time. The solution? A silicone mold that allows each individual layer to be formed into a single, even, round disk, six at a time. With this technique, each preshaped layer can be stacked in place for quick assemblly. A crucial added benefit of this technique is that all the layers have the same diameter and thickness. Two types of EntreMats were designed. The open mat without a bottom is ideal for baking as it allows for the ingredients to caramelize. The other mat has a bottom to control and shape liquid recipes during freezing or baking. The benefit of using the bottom mat is that the mold contains the moisture and fats during either process. Both mats have a 7.5 diameter (which fits nicely into an 8 cake ring) allowing enough space for the mousse to encapsulate each layer when constructing the entremets. The finaly result, a multi-layered cross section with uniformly level and even layers. EntreMats are made of food contact safe silicone and can be blast frozen or baked up to 450F/232 C.
